Here We Go Again

I’ve done this before. Sadly, I’m having to repeat myself. I started off well tonight.

See, I’m once again sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m irritable, irrational, irascible, ireful, and otherwise ill-natured. I’m tired of the house, the kids, the husband, and just about everything else, including myself. None of my clothes fit, I feel crummy in my own skin, I’m making faces at myself in the mirror because I can’t stand the sight of me.

So today, I committed to a seasonal challenge. Eat no candy. None of the Halloween junk, nothing brought in by friendly colleagues. Double Bubble doesn’t count, right? Miss MommaK of Petroville fame, and toga-party-hotness has challenged several of us to keep our mouths shut in relation to ingesting chocolatey goodness.

So, tonight I went one teeny step further. Several of my fellow soccer moms have decided to make good use of our ‘down time’ during the time our daughters are passing, dribbling, crossing and punting. so we walked about five long loops around the soccer fields. At a fast pace. Got my heart rate up for over 45 minutes. Yay me.

I’ve been way too lazy, and my ass spread shows it. I wasn’t exactly perky and trim before, but I wasn’t as flabby and soft as I am now. I have a couple of cute skirts and dresses I haven’t been able to wear in over a year. Next spring I’m fitting in them.

Ready, Set, GO!
